Welcome to the site of El Duende. We are a 4-6 piece band, depending on the availability of the pieces, and the moon cycles, playing in and around Sydney Australia. Our first album "Overcome", was released in September 2005.

We released its successor, "Fleeting Glimpses" in 2009. It was produced by Genevieve Maynard and yours truly (Daniel Morphett), which features guest artists Peter Hollo(Cellist from Fourplay), Jason Morphett(Saxophone great, who has played with everyone from Louis Tillet to X to every interesting jazz band you can think of, also Daniel's cousin) and Glad Reed (Trombone, Midnight Oil, Red Ochre).
